lyrics

Plain As Paper

That girl is plain as paper, white as white can be
Her face is dull like the earth and dirt
But you see her and you don’t see me

If she speaks it’s but a whisper, her mouth so pale and small
And there’s nothin’ special in the way she walks
But if she passes I see you see it all

I’ve been tryin’, feels like wastin’
All my aces to have you see
But I’m not getin’, any closer
To bein’ anything you need
Cause you see her, and you don’t see me

Well what am I gonna do now, I thought I had it all
But all the pretty girls in the whole wide world
You wouldn’t trade them for your little paper doll
All pretty girls in the whole wide world
They got nothin’ on your little paper doll

I’ve been tryin’, feels like wastin’
All my aces to have you see
But I’m not getin’ any closer
To bein’ anything you need
Cause you see her and you don’t see me
